ABSORBING INDIA, 16" x 16" fused glass by Mindy Weisel.
Mindy says about her work:  "For the past 30 years I have been working with paints: doing works on paper; oils on canvas; monotypes; etchings. In 2005, I started using glass instead of paint. Glass powders; frits; stringers; broken glass; all became the 'new paints'."
She says, "I work spontaneously, freely, without any premeditation and actually do very little 'thinking' when I'm working. It is a very organic process and the glass becomes the vehicle for expressing what I'm feeling, experiencing, seeing and remembering. I love that the layers and layers of the working process stay visible when the work is completed."
